Dude doesn't get the love he deserves on here. A living legend. In my top 3, and at times my favorite rapper of all-time. Probably the greatest rapper alive IMO. From his work with the legendary Juice Crew to his solo work... Road to Riches Wanted: Dead or Alive Live and Let Die (the greatest first 3 albums in hip hop history ?) 4,5,6 Roots of Evil Giancana Story (last two attempts are not really worth mention) His influence is unquestionable. He was a major force in developing the whole Mafioso/Gangster theme in hip-hop. Countless rappers credit their styles to KoolG. When it comes to rapid multi-syllable rhymes, an almost flawless flow, great storytelling, vivid imagery and attention grabbing delivery few if any haveever did it as well as him.
